The Volkswagen owned Bugatti continues its tradition of announcing one of its Legend Edition models during important venues, as for the Geneva auto show it was time to see the fourth special model.
The 2.18 million euros Legend Edition is dedicated to Rembrandt Bugatti, brother to the company founder Ettore Bugatti. While he was named after the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, Rembrandt Bugatti was actually one of the most famous sculptors of the 20th century.
The story around the Legend series is known – there are six in total, each has only three cars in its run and they are all based on the Grand Sport Vitesse. The Rembrandt is distinguished through the bronze clear-coated carbon exterior, while the lower portion of the car is light brown. The tone goes on inside the cabin, which wears a light brown “Cognac” leather upholstery – and nice features include a platinum EB logo on the steering wheel and some more carbon fiber for the center console.
The exterior also features alloy wheels painted in “Firefinch” and light “Noix” browns, while the fuel and oil cap have been laser embroided with Rembrandt’s signature.
